The summer heat is starting to sizzle! We wanted to share a couple of fun recipes for cold doggie-safe pupsicles to keep them cool this year. These recipes are shared from the Summer 2020 issue of Modern Dog magazine.

Banana Froyo or Pupsicles

Ingredients
2 bananas, the riper the better
1 large container (32 ounces) unsweetened yogurt (no gelatine or sweetener added – watch for artificial sweeteners and check ingredients to be sure it does not contain xylitol!)

Instructions
Serve fresh, semi-frozen or frozen! Combine ingredients in a blender, food processor, or Magic Bullet. To make froyo (semi-frozen), freeze the bananas for an hour or two before blending. For pupsicles (frozen), pour into ice cube trays or silicone molds and freeze overnight. You can also add fresh apple slices or strawberries for an extra nice treat.

Peanut Butter Froyo or Pupsicles

Ingredients
1 ripe banana
1 large container (32 ounces) unsweetened yogurt (no gelatine or sweetener added – watch for artificial sweeteners and check ingredients to be sure it does not contain xylitol!)
3 tbsp peanut butter (with no sugar, salt, aspartame or xylitol added)
2 tsp honey


Instructions
Serve fresh, semi-frozen or frozen! Combine ingredients in a blender, food processor, or Magic Bullet. To make froyo (semi-frozen), freeze the bananas for an hour or two before blending. For pupsicles (frozen), pour into ice cube trays or silicone molds and freeze overnight.

Remember: Calories count, so use these treats sparingly! Overweight pets might need to refrain!
